Volunteer for cancer support

By giving us their time and expertise, our volunteers enable us to support those affected by cancer.

Volunteering lies at the heart of everything that we do at Cancer Support Switzerland.

Our volunteers have a range of backgrounds and skillsets, and many are cancer survivors or caregivers themselves. By joining this community of volunteers, you will have the opportunity to work in an international team environment, learn new skills, and contribute to helping make the lives of those affected by cancer just a little bit easier. Join our team and make a difference!

As a volunteer you will have access to training, community events and an incredible network of likeminded people.
